In Genesis 6:3 the Lord said :My spirit shall not strive with man forever for He is indeed flesh.,yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.
God desired to walk with us on earth for a long time. But man continued to sin against God as they multiplied on the earth. But before that God’s spirit “strived” with man. To strive means ( to make a great effort to achieve something). It tells me God does not give up on you. He wont give up on you. Our sins separated us from God, but God knowing we can’t do it on our own sent His only son to die for our sins.To restore our broken relationship with Him.
Even after shortening mans days on earth. Man continued to sin against God. In genesis 6:5 , it says that the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thought of His heart was only evil continually.
In Genesis 6:6, and the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth. And He was grieved in His heart.
Imagine God wanted the best for us. But man kept disobeying God. He formed man and blessed man. His plan from the beginning for you and me is to have the best, be blessed and happy.
God decided that He would destroy everything. But His love is soo deep that He still wanted man on earth. Even after how many times we have disobeyed God He continues loving us. So would you hurt someone that loves you? Will you pay evil in return for good?
God decided to wipe out everything. In verse 6;8 the first word is but. BUT: . God still has a but no matter how sinful u’ve lived. How disastrous your sin has led you to. How lost your soul is and how confused your mind is. Almighty God still says BUT, he hasnt finished with you. Its not the end of you. He still loves you and wants to use you. Its not too late for you to be restored. Its not late. He’s still calling you.
Genesis 6;8 but noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. God’s grace is sufficient. God’s grace, grace, grace, will carry you through the storm. Ask God for grace.
Grace means: “the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it”
And when you read further about noah it says genesis 6:9 That noah was a just man, perfect in His generation. NOAH walked with God.
With the holy spirit living in us as christians. We should ask for total control from Him. We should seek to continually seek after God so we can walk with Him. We should be the generation to reach out and spread God’s word. To save lost souls
God still had grace, death was a consequence of adams sin, but God’s love was too deep He continued to keep man on earth. After Adam sin continued to multiply and God decided to shorten man’s days BUT he let noah live past 120 years. God decided to destroy everything BUT he still kept man. Our God is merciful and has grace. His love for you is unconditional one. This should make us understand that no matter what has happened And what is happening God still has grace. He wont give up on you. He will never give up on you. He wants the best ever for you, He has great plans for you.
